Way back in 1986,
when we purchased the farm we inherited
two of these trees in our front garden.
My memory says they were called
Illawarra Strawberry Trees.
Illawarra is a region south of Sydney
and while the trees did produce small
red berries, after flowering, they
looked nothing like the strawberries
which grace our dining table from time to time
The wall in the background is part of
a memorial to the
1994 Commonwealth Games.
Commencing with yukky subjects
Not long after leaving the farm I found a
huge spider crawling up our front door.
Thinking it was ONE spider I brushed it off the door
only to see around 20-30 little ones
running around inside the house.
The things you don’t want to see in your garden.
Yes, the next two were posted in
my 2020 favourites post last week.
However, each bloom was barely a centimetre in length,
small enough to be included again.
A busy bee.
So busy it did not know it was my subject.
